i suggest for you to watch:
Roger Dingledine - Next Generation Tor Onion Services

SwitchVPN is great for torrenting. Good benefit is that SwitchVPN is non US company and it uses Tier-1 bandwidth. While PIA uses low quality bandwidth as it is giving cheap VPN and purchases Cheap Bandwidth. SwitchVPN only uses Tier-1 bandwidth provider and never compromises about Quality of network and performance.
You can sign up for their 1 Month free account and test it out. :)
It is promotional offer, it is not free for lifetime.
They offer limited time free VPN. So users can experience the quality of VPN.
SwitchVPN does not do any logging and allows p2p downloads unlimited.
You need to purchase a Dedicated IP VPN, they will give you a static IP will be used only by your account and never shared with others.
You can check SwitchVPN, PureVPN. They both offer Dedicated IP Plan.

SwitchVPN is working well in China, can you please provide me your VPN username or ticket id So i can check and contact you regarding resolving the connection issue. Looking forward to your response
It hasn't been the last week likely because of governmental meetings. Your the fourth support member to tell me that though. I'll pm you my username
Edit: I contacted customer support about my issue. They confirmed that SwitchVPN is working in China. However, for me it is not and I have not heard back from them about my ticket. At this point I've switched VPN services.
Edit2: My issue was never properly resolved. They just kept telling me that their VPN wa working fine in Chinaand never followed up on my ticket with any troubleshooting ideas. I have used their service before without issue but recently something changed. I have since switched over to PandaPOW for VPN services in China.
I've tried them all:
I'm currently using SwitchVPN: Reasonably priced, fast, up to 3 devices simultaneously. After the trial I bought a semester in advance!
Astrill: Excellent but more expensive.
ExpressVPN: Sluggish and expensive.
: Reliable and CHEAP, but slow.
I use SwitchVPN and have been very happy with it. I actually get faster speeds using it than when I was torrenting straight through my ISP. I've seen a lot of people on reddit recommend Private Internet Access, as well. They're both about the same price (~$40 per year) and have roughly the same features so check them out and see which one looks best to you.
The limited plan for SwitchVPN is cheaper.. but its limited
The standard plans for PIA are far cheaper (and have more options, more servers, and more widely used for P2P)
Try SwitchVPN (or any VPN that uses OpenVPN, really). They give you a ridiculously high download speed and no data caps. On my 40mbps connection (tested max of 40) I was getting as high as 30-36 with the VPN.
Not sure how that scales up to 1gbit though, but I'm guessing you'll be getting in the 100 mbps range on torrents which is more than most torrents reach.
